Try to restart the computer in Last known good configuration from the Advance boot options by restarting the computer using F8 key continuously. If doesn't work then put in the Windows CD. If Windows XP : Restart the computer and keep tapping F12. From boot menu highlight CD/DVD or IDE CD ROM or USB CD ROM. Keep on pressing enter on it until get the screen loading files. Then on the first Welcome page press "R" If you have a dual-boot or multiboot system, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.

Place a Windows XP disk in to a drive and just after pressing power button keep pressing F10 or F12 to get to the boot menu then choose cd/dvd drive and follow procedures from the screen to repair or install system. ANother way is by pressing F1 or F2 or Del just after pressing power button to get to BIOS the go to Boot options and set firs cd/dvd drive then press F10 and enter.
If you are getting a Blue screen repeatedly and you can't start up to
windows in any custom setting ( from f8 start up menu ) one way to
solve the problem is to Use the restore disc or windows installation cd
or dvd to install
windows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windows
already exists on the computer and the setup can find it.
how to perform a repair installation
this is for xp, but its similar on 2000 and on vista.
insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.
the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen,
press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.
not then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either
enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power
up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in
order to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.
if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.
after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)
here's some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php
Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.
2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.
3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.
4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.
5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.
6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.
windows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, they
are at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acer
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all other
brands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to the
right place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.
Can you get it to boot using any of the options it gives other than boot normally? If the blue screen is caused by hardware then installing xp will still present the problem. If the blue screen is an operating system crash then using the recovery disk or doing a repair install will solve the boot problem.
If you still rather install xp then you need to go into BIOS and set 1st boot device as CD. To go into BIOS you will need to press F10 or F2 (usually) as displayed on the splash screen when you power on
Do you hear the cd/dvd working? Is the machine booting to the cd?
If so, boot using the WINXP cd. When it comes to the install screen say yes to a new install, it will ask you to accept the license, press F8. XP will then check for previous versions of windows already installed. If it finds one, select "R" to repair the existing copies of XP. You may need to reactivate your copy of windows and redo any updates but thats no big deal.
Now if none of that works try the following:
Can you access the start options menu when the machine boots by pressing the F8 key as the first toshiba screen is shown keep pressing F8 until a screen appears that shows:
Safe Mode w/ Networking
Safe Mode Command Prompt
disable auto restart
and some other entries
Choose safe mode with command prompt.
it will look like an old ms/dos window.
type CHKDSK /R
